A prototype mobile App for the Landslide Information System (LIS) The Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute (HKJCDPRI) Research Grant 2016 was awarded to the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). The research aims at developing a new smart Landslide Information System (LIS) that can improve the planning of access and evacuation routes for emergency responders during intense rainstorms. Furthermore, the LIS aims to provide easily accessible real-time landslide information to the public and to enhance landslide incident reporting in Hong Kong via smart technology.

Early warning systems are critical to protecting populations from harm during disasters. The recent Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction highlights a need to increase the availability of and access to early warning systems as a priority target.1 A number of nations, including Hong Kong, have already established highly developed early warning systems. However, the changing landscape of communication technologies has created both opportunities and challenges for people as they navigate a greater number of information networks, and a higher frequency of messaging.
